Nope, didn't loose anything. The CO told me anybody who has been through driving school, and believed that line of crap needed to go back to school. He was transfered out to another unit. I'm guessing he was no longer a driver, of any type.

I can tell you about a LT. that got pulled off of the Captains list because he instrusted a fresh out of basic private to take his 203, point it at a chopper, and fire a dummy round at it....which had more then just a primer load in it. Do you have any idea what a large doll rod, used in 230 dummy rounds, with a double charge of power, and primed, will do to the belly of a chopper, when it goes through the control pannel? The law of gravity will take over. And, no it wasn't me. I did get the fun of trying to get a 10 ton tractor with a low boy trailer out in the sticks to recover said chopper.

Of course it is also hard to fill the radiator on your pre 1960 volkswagen beatle, Mostly because the instructions are not printed anymore. but you can google it !

And don't forget about the 3 core radiator on the Chevy Covair.

One thing i hAvent noticed yet is no one has metioned ''despreadrisers'' These are critical if you plan to drive your coach forward for more than one mile if it is not raining. these must be oiled and platted with just a dab of peanut butter on the ends. this is critical ...
Seajay the sailor man ......
ps. ''ding ding'' that is my 'bell sound''.................

If you run out of cold steam, it must mean your threads are worn. A fresh roll of pipe thread should take care of it.....

Above all remember to get rid of that screaching brake noise you hear once the rivets hit the rotors and there is still a good 1/4" of good brake pad left............
Use a generous amount of wheel bearing grease on the pads rather than elbow grease.
